Cheques are no longer accepted as a form of payment in Norway. But you can pay for most everything with a credit card or debit card. Widely accepted Norway credit card brands include Visa, Eurocard, MasterCard, Diners Club and American Express cards. These types of cards can be used at the larger establishments and hotels in most locations.
If you are visiting Norway, you should be aware that while most establishments now accept credit cards as a form of payment, not all will accept a foreign credit card. You should consult with your credit card company to find out if credit card purchases made in Norway will be honored on your card, and what the fees will be for such transaction. It is also a good idea to have Norwegian currency on hand when you are travelling just in case your credit card isn't accepted.
There are various Norwegian credit cards you can check out, but the best suggestion is to apply for the main brands mentioned above. When reviewing credit card offers, be sure to read the terms and conditions before applying for a card as the benefits, interest rates, and fees will vary by issuer.
